Britain does not intend to follow Canada’s example and grant Israel de facto recognition, a Foreign Office spokesman said today. He added that Canada did not consult Britain before extending recognition to the Jewish state.

Official circles here denied today that the British Government has received a direct appeal from Egypt regarding fighting in the Negev.
